Hi, I recently looked into possibly switching to a
wireless internet provider - in the hopes of getting
off of AT&Tbi. One of the reasons, is that I would like
to get my downstream closer to what it had been before
they switched networks.
They tout speeds of up to 2Megabits a second -
both upstream and downstream.
Comparing this to AT&T 128kbps\1.5Megabit - it seems
like absolutely no contest hands down. Wireless would
win in both cases.
Is this extremely misleading? With cable, you can reliably download from the same site and reach your maximum speed.
With wireless would it be a crapshoot, some days you might get 1.5Megabits\s, and other days you might be lucky to get 500kbps?
Like if I was transferring files from home to work, some days might be 500kbps - and some 1.5 Megabits per second.
Actually reaching 2Megabits a sec reliably - would be unlikely?
Thank you for your time,
